I would call this sci-fi on mushrooms. Funny, but very weird.On a side note: I've never been afraid of rats, but I might reconsider.

This was on my to-read list for a long time and I probably wouldn’t have gotten to it anytime soon if I hadn’t landed on Tomorrow Land 36: Ride space mountain! Read a book with either an image of or from space or where the authors full name contains the letters SPACE I’ve never been a huge fan of ...

This was really cute. Had a lot of laughing out loud moments. Completely ridiculous, which was nice because I didn't have to keep up with the bogus science...
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
My experience of Hitch-hikers Guide goes all the way back to the mid-eighties when I found this adventure game in a computer magazine that I typed out (though it is not the 1984 Infocom version). Basically it was one of those games where you wander around a world solving problems and collecting trea...

This was the book club selection for the group that I was hosting last night, so yesterday I decided that I better give it a quick read rather than depend upon my memory of the movie for discussion. As most of you probably already know, it is a unique blend of British wit and rambling adventures. I ...

I seen this book around a lot, but I had never taken the time to read it or even find out what it was really about. Really it's told kind of like a nonsense story, but it's very entertaining and full of philosophical bits. I enjoyed it very much. It sort of makes light of the whole idea of existe...

Sometimes I read a book that gives me true anxiety to rate. I wonder if it would actually be better if I just drank a bottle of wine before rating or writing a review for these books because everything is so easy to me when I'm drinking wine - laughing, joking, eating, falling. Everything. But I c...

If I'm not really careful, this will be the longest thing I ever post here. Let's see how much restraint I have, shall we? I think I read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for the first time in 1987 (maybe 1988), and have read it countless times since then. I quote it all the time (frequently u...

Ridiculous, fun, and decidedly tongue-in-cheek. I'm only surprised it took me this long to check it out! Now I'll have to check out the others. Favourite passage: "Hey, they're shooting at us," said Arthur, crouching in a tight ball. "I thought they said they didn't want to do that.""Yeah, I tho...

This book is probably not for everyone: it hasn't got any deep thoughts and doesn't give you more stuff to think about. Sounds like a book I wouldn't enjoy, but I actually did: I like the sense of humour and well, I never really say no to a cute alien story.
